“deception”

Champagne French Bakery Cafe
Ranked #7 of 10 Bakeries in Encinitas
Cuisines: French
Restaurant details
Reviewed 6 December 2013

From the time it open its doors, the Champagne bakery pastries transported you visually to France. Their unspoken promess of a gustatory delight was confirmed at the first bite. Unfortunatly, I cannot say the same things today. The pastries ' quality has been declining steadily throughout the past years, since the bakery has changed owners; also the selections have reduced.
It is deplorable that this happened!

My daughter and grandson were treating me to a late breakfast at the Champagne French Bakery Café in Encinitas. You order at the counter and they bring your selections to your table. The coffee is self-service. All our breakfast entrees were excellent and presented well. The outdoor patio tables are very nice. It was a slightly overcast day and just perfect for an outdoor breakfast with the family. Although we didn't partake, the pastries looked absolutely delicious and several other diners confirmed it. Breakfast prices were reasonable. Once we had been served we never saw our waiter again. If you want more coffee or water or whatever, you just go get it. All in all it was a very enjoyable, relaxing and leisurely breakfast.

This is a great place to stop for a cup of coffee and a special treat. The pastries can be a little pricey, but all good.
Breakfast/brunch also wonderful and it's nice to sit outside in the large patio area and people watch.
I've come here with friends, but mostly solo while running errands or need a little pick me up.

Great little French bistro with all the things you want for a lovely lunch in the courtyard. Bakery items yummy.

Cakes are very good but expensive. (Paris by comparison is cheaper.) Cappuccino is only fair and weak.
